What’s better than ordering your favorite cup of coffee at your favorite cafe?- brewing your own cup of coffee at home.

In the beginning, learning to brew your own coffee can be quite overwhelming but it is sure to take your love for the beverage to new heights.

There’s a lot to learn but we’ve got you.



Different coffee brewing accessories

Once you get into your home brewing, you may find yourself tempted to buy all kinds of equipment: different filters, different brewers, kettles… but how much do you really need as a beginner? Not much actually.

Remember that coffee is always a matter of your own personal tastes. It’s not about which device makes the best brew but rather which one makes the best brew for you.

Here are our expert recommendations for your home-made brew as they are easy to use and affordable. 



The French Press Coffee maker is the easiest of all coffee brewing systems where coarsely grounded coffee beans meet hot water right off the boil. 

Like always, the first step to brewing is to grind your coffee beans. For the french press, it is ideal to go with a coarse grind; a fine grind would slip through the mesh/ sieve and give you a muddy cup of coffee.

It is great to measure your beans. Ideally, we recommend 15-20g of coffee for a cup of coffee. Once you have your grounded beans, pour it into the french press & add hot water. Cover and let it sit for about 4 minutes, press down & pour out your coffee. 




The coffee from Moka pots are the perfect middle ground between espresso and drip coffee. And it is pretty easy to use as well.

Firstly, fill your Moka pot bottom chamber with water. We recommend hot water but cold water is fine too, it just takes longer to brew.

Next, add your grounded coffee to your filter basket & place on the bottom chamber. The grind size for the Moka pot is fine, just not as fine as the grind size for an espresso.

Now put your pot together by screwing the top and bottom chambers together. Then place on your stove (we recommend low to medium heat). Once on the stove, after about 2 minutes the coffee will start to flow.

Take it off the heat to cool off as soon as it starts spurting. It will continue brewing until all the water has moved up.

Lastly, pour out & serve cafe standard coffee from the comfort of your home.

The Clever dripper coffee maker is very easy to use and makes a nice, clean cup of coffee.

First, grind your beans to the preferred size & set your water to boil. We recommend that you pour a little bit of hot water over the filter of your clever dripper to rinse out any dirt or dust.

Add your grounded coffee and corresponding amount of water. Remember that the goal here is to fully immerse your coffee ground. Now, cover your dripper to keep the temperature up. After about a minute, stir lightly just to make sure your coffee grounds are not floating at the top.

After about 2 minutes, lift your clever dipper and place it on your cup. Make sure your cup is big enough to accommodate the amount of coffee you are brewing. With that settled, it’s time to draw down your coffee.

Enjoy the aroma & Bon appetit.

Now, there are a lot of coffee beans on the market so here is a brief explanation of general roast profiles you will need to brew great coffee at home:

  • Light roasted coffee beans: The light roast is light brown in color, maintains more of its original & unique flavor and acidity and contains more caffeine. This is perfect for coffee enthusiasts who want more caffeine.
  • Medium roasted coffee beans: The beans are medium brown in color and have a balanced flavor profile that combines some roasty notes with the qualities of the original bean.Compared to light roasts, they have a slightly lower acidity and caffeine content.
  • Dark roasted coffee beans: The color of the dark-roasted coffee beans range from deep brown to almost black. These beans have a robust, rich flavor that is less acidic and fuller in body. Dark roasts frequently have overtones of bittersweet chocolate, toasted almonds, and sometimes even a touch of bitterness.
